View Full Version : What Constitutes as an Attack Skill?

Determine shot says it recharges all attack skills... Does this include spells like Strip Enchantment? Technically wouldn't violating someone's enchantments be considered an attack?

I believe attack skills are skills that you actually attack with and deal direct damage such as power shot. Strip enchantment is a Spell and does not use your weapon where-as attack skills do.

Look at the bubble. If it says 'spell' then it is a spell. If it says 'bow attack', 'sword attack', or the like then it is an attack. If it says 'skill' then it is a skill.

attack is anything that can deal direct damage

True, but what's covered by things such as that are actually a bit fuzzy. I've had Determined Shot recharge both my Throw Dirt and Whirling Defense skills on a number of occasions. Mind you, this happened last BWE, so it may no longer happen. *shrug*

It's possible that Determined Shot is bugged and does refresh Whirling Defense, Throw Dirt, etc. An attack, however, is not 'anything that deals direct damage' - that may be a functional definition applicable to real life, but Flare is a spell and penetrating attack is a bow attack
